This and more of the Filipino festive culture is being highlighted by Golden Cowrie Filipino Restaurant under Hukad Cebu Golden Restaurant, Inc. With its rich offerings of local Filipino dishes, wooden interiors and long tables where more people can dine together, and excellent service reflecting Filipino hospitality, one can truly enjoy only the finest native Filipino cuisine.

Indeed, here it’s Always a feast!

Where generations come together

For 33 years, Cebu’s homegrown restaurant Golden Cowrie and Hukad have been part of families’ celebrations. Consequently, these restaurants being managed by one of Cebu’s restaurant empires, Hukad and Golden Cowrie, rose to become a culinary destination for both local and international tourists.

``Now, a real Filipino Feast!``

Hukad/Golden Cowrie has become VisMin’s go-to restaurant for Filipino comfort food. Highlighting on regional fares, such as Cebu’s famous lechon, and other truly Filipino tastes plus the offering of unlimited rice, Hukad and Golden Cowrie signifies the purely Pinoy salu-salo that is never short on delectable food.

Our Brands

In order to match with the latest in Filipino food innovations and to appeal to a new wave of customers, Golden Cowrie opened two new restaurant ventures: Hukad and Salinas, and added fresh and exciting dishes to the menu, but still remained true to the original concept of native Filipino cuisine.

Our Newest Brand

Salinas reinvents timeless Filipino food to suit more refined palates of today. Classic recipes meet modern execution. The plating, ambience, and service are also transformed to connect with the trends of present-day.

Though it presents a fresh take on the homegrown dishes we’ve loved, Salinas remains truly Filipino. It is established on Golden Cowrie’s principle of bringing the best out of Filipino cuisine.
